Current Internship Opportunities:
Position Opening: News Intern
KUNC offers internships in the KUNC newsroom to provide students with a hands-on opportunity to report on a variety of issues for both on-air and web-only formats. On-air reporting will focus on interviewing, writing and production of news spots and long-form features. Web-only reporting includes repurposing on-air material or writing original text, aggregating links, slide shows, and graphics as well as integrating audio and video into web and social media posts.
Interns seeking college credit will be required to fulfill all requirements as mandated by their department prior to beginning the internship. Students of the University of Colorado should contact CU Career Services for more information. For more information contact Brian Larson, News Director.
Position Opening: Music Intern
KUNC Music is an eclectic mix that blends singer-songwriters with contemporary and classic folk and rock artists. The music department is seeking interns who are knowledgeable and appreciative of various styles of music. Duties vary depending on the needs of the Music Department but may include logging and sorting CDs, importing music into the automation system, researching artists, and other music related tasks.
This is an unpaid position; however, the opportunity to earn credit for college and the experience from working at an affiliate of National Public Radio has proven to be very rewarding. The hours are flexible dependent upon the intern’s availability and schedule. Interns must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or a GED.
